Beautiful: The Carole King Musical
His Majesty's Theatre
Musical charting the early life and career of the singer-songwriter and her husband Gerry Goffin.
Carole King, the chart-topping music legend, was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.
She fought her way into the record industry as a teenager and sold her first hit 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow', when she was just 17. By the time she was 20 she was writing number ones for the biggest acts in rock‘n’roll, including The Drifters, The Shirelles, Aretha Franklin and The Monkees.
But her greatest challenge was to find her own voice and finally step into the spotlight.
Beautiful is the untold story of Carole King’s journey from school girl to superstar; from her relationship with husband and song-writing partner Gerry Goffin, their close friendship and playful rivalry with fellow song-writing duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, to her remarkable rise to stardom. Along the way she became one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history and wrote the soundtrack to a generation.
The cast includes Katie Brayben as Carole King, Alan Morrissey as King’s husband and song-writing partner Gerry Goffin, with Lorna Want as song-writer Cynthia Weil, Glynis Barber as Genie Klein, King’s mother, and Gary Trainor as music publisher and producer Don Kirshner.
